WH Records has given spot #23 to this extraordinary psychedelic power noise ensemble. Intense auditory massage reaches into your brain to tweak your evolution.
EXOXEN has spent at least 15 years as a tape project among a small group of friends, and is making its first international debut here. A large number of instruments and an armada of analogue and digital effects were deployed in this compelling textural assault.
What more can I say? Listening is believing. But if pressed for a comparison, I'd say place them on a spectrum somewhere between Helios Creed and Throbbing Gristle. Get this album and spend some time with it. It's destined to become a cult favorite.

Here is a review from noise.dj:
EXOXEN - 1.0
Webbed Hand Records has released some very interesting recordings based on found sound and digital manipulation. Exoxen is the most easily listenable recording I have heard from them. While still being challenging it does give the listener a lot to work with. There's more of a variety of sounds on 1.0 than on other Webbed Hand releases. It is noisy but remains easily understood by the ear. archive.org

Good Science Fiction
I keep some but not all tracks in my work-a-day playlist - listening at reduced volume, for me, being post-psychedelic in demeanor, is good sci-fi transportive ambience...keeps me unreal, focused, active and productive. Much subtley here and so appoints my inner work-space. In this sense it is for me of the psyche in that my outer world dissolves from attention and the occupational intellectual tasks become preoccupational and immersive. e5 and e6 are Big Favorites of mine... Like the Ram Dass book title, The Only Dance There Is, I give this one five stars because, in that sense, you can dance to it...

Good ole head banging days...
Some great and powerful tracks here but the over packages is competent. That is not to say its bad - quite the opposite. Deep, potent and trance inducing: electronic orgasm with a sprinkle of rock and ballard. Check out the first 3 tracks for some real FUN! I wouldn't recommend any chemical inducements for these 3 since its not really required (go ahead then and fry your brain then). Overall definately a strong stand-alone album but with a bit more variety it could have the THE best psychedelic internet album. I would recommend listening of this with headphones....you don't want to drive the neighbours nuts!!
